I am honored to be returning to Mexico next week to facilitate a workshop on WordPress and Other Open Source Technologies for the Preservation and Dissemination of Traditional Knowledge. The workshops (mine is one of four) will take place throughout the week in Oaxaca City.

If you’re in that neck of the woods, let me know – we can share great ideas under the spell of beautiful Oaxaca (and perhaps some mezcal). Cheers, Mark
